GW women’s soccer freshman Melanie Keer was named Atlantic 10 Co-Rookie of the Week Monday. Keer, who typically plays defender for the Colonials, earned the overtime assist that led to GW’s game-winning goal against Mount St. Mary’s Sunday.
Keer and her fellow defenders held both the Mount and Friday’s opponent UMBC scoreless over the weekend, allowing a combined five shots on goal in the two GW victories over the weekend.

Berhanu, Aluko earn spots on all-tournament team

Despite going winless in the D.C. College Cup at American University over the weekend, GW men’s soccer players Yoni Berhanu and Andrew Aluko both earned spots on the all-tournament team after the Colonials’ 1-0 loss to Howard Saturday.
Berhanu, a junior forward, scored GW’s only goal in the pair of games over the weekend, on a penalty kick in the first minute of the Colonials’ 3-1 loss to George Mason Friday. Berhanu also tied for the team lead in shots over the weekend with five spread between the two games.
Aluko, a freshman who plays both midfield and defense, played significant minutes off the bench in both games. He had one shot in 37 minutes against the Patriots Friday and played 88 minutes Saturday, replacing Senior Kory Trott two minutes into the game against Howard.
